- Turtle Beach makes its debut into the simulation hardware domain with a big bang.
- The company teases two new gaming hardware devices made for all Xbox users to enjoy.
- For flight simulation fans, Turtle Beach has designed the awesome VelocityOne Flight.
- There is also a new Xbox gamepad in the works, with new features, called Recon Controller.
If you ask flight simulator games genre fans, they will all say that there isn’t a better way to enjoy such games then with a state of the art controller.
This piece of hardware doesn’t just make the game easier to play, but it also gives you that first hand pilot experience, transporting you to the actual cockpit of a plane.
New flight sim controller designed by Turtle Beach
The VelocityOne Flight, as it’s called, actually marks Turtle Beach’s grand entrance into the simulation hardware domain.
The company says that the hardware was developed while collaborating with top aeronautical engineers and pilots, to deliver one of the most immersive, authentic, and modern PC and Xbox flying experiences on the market.
How’s that for a presentation? Also, the fact that the VelocityOne Flight is being revealed just days after Microsoft revealed the new Microsoft Flight Simulator, doesn’t seem to be such a big coincidence.
Turtle Beach also adds that the VelocityOne controller is designed for simulation fans of all experience levels.
It also comes equipped with a true-to-life 180-degree yoke handle, with built-in rudder controls. Even more than that, it includes a modular quadrant throttle that features custom, replaceable lever handles.
You may want to know that the VelocityOne Flight connects via USB to Xbox Series X|S and PC.
This controller seems to be a pretty solid option if you are planning to play games such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, or other such games, like Star Wars Squadrons.
New Xbox Series X/S controller also on the way
Together with the VelocityOne Flight controller, Turtle Beach also announced the production of anew Recon Controller for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.
The gadget comes equipped with a 3.5mm headphone jack, as well as a Pro-Aim Focus Mode, which lets users tweak the thumbstick sensitivity for first-person shooters.
This futuristic looking gamepad will also have support for four different profiles.
How much do these controllers actually cost?
We’ve talked about design and performance so far, so it’s only right that we move on to the next important chapter for any gaming hardware release, which is price.
Before that, though, you may also want to know that the VelocityOne Flight and the Recon Controller are launching sometime this summer, although Turtle Beach hasn’t revealed a precise release date yet.
The Recon Controllers will go for about $59.95 when it launches, which is not bad at all, considering the actual cost of a regular Xbox controller.
As far as the VelocityOne Flight goes, the price will be much higher, meaning somewhere around $349.95.
